Re: Opening Day pushed?

Some promising news...

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred told teams Monday to expect spring training to begin on time in February and for a 162-game regular season to occur, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Re: 2020 Main Event Championship Profile - James Tomony

1st - Trea Turner
2nd - Shane Bieber
3rd - Yu Darvish
4th - Brandon Woodruff
5th - Manny Machado
6th - Jose Abreu

Ummmm, that may be the most dominating 6 pack start to a main event draft EVER. Nice job and congrats!

Re: Opening Day pushed?

For Mr Emma and I, a big part of going to live events includes going out to enjoy the city (NYC and LV). IF these cities have mandatory mask mandates and bars are basically closed, that’s likely a deal breaker for me going to LV and my NYC trip will be a very quick trip. Again, this sucks. My favori...

Re: Opening Day pushed?

There's not much to be gained in making a decision now, only to overturn it with more knowledge later. It's not just the DH in the National League. We don't know other rules as well.... How many playoff teams... Double Header length... Runner on 2nd for the 10th inning... Will those be kept? Yup. U...

Re: Talk Is So Cheap

Thanks for the mention, Dan. I love talking fantasy baseball; however I typically refrain from discussing players for the upcoming season. Too much risk of owners simply stealing evals/pics and using them for their own benefit and my detriment. I’m not an industry guy so I’m not in a position where ...

Re: Slow Draft Suggestions

My other suggestion would be that if you manually put yourself on Auto, you should be taken off auto if your queue runs out. A lot of times there's say 5 guys I like and I have to leave for a few hours but I'm 7-10 picks away. There's a 95%+ chance that one of my guys will be available so I'd put m...

Re: Slow Draft Suggestions

There is also the respect factor. If a drafter goes to sleep at 10 pm without using auto, that shows little respect to those that stay up late because.....well....they signed up for the draft. If a west coaster is going to bed at 2AM ET and won’t be up until noon ET, is it disrespectful for them no...

Re: Different

Will you play in big events? My plan entering 2020 (26 week season) was no more than 4 FAAB leagues with the most important being the 10K Diamond Auction. Entering 2021, I’ll be sticking with a max of 4 FAAB leagues. With Covid still around and additional risks due to coming off a 60 game season (S...

Re: Different

Hi Mark! Is it the length of the season or the whole Covid thing? For example, what if we start 2021 in earnest with a six month schedule. But Covid interferes with the season. It's knocked down to 120 games. Do you feel it should be Asterisked again? 2020 was far different from anything we've done...

Re: Different

Hi Doughy!! "Most do not agree". :lol: While everyone deserves to be acknowledged and congratulated for accomplishments, I don't compare the skill set an owner demonstrated over a 60 game season with that of a 162 game season. The gap is simply too large for me. And yes, as the luck% increases, I ag...

Re: MAIN EVENT Lifetime Ranking

What a goofy hill to defend: Asterisks should be attached to all 2020 champions and the 2020 season. Stupid. You take obscure views Mark, but this one takes the cake. You know how hard you had to work to manage multiple second place finishes this year and it took every skill possible. Was more luck...

Re: MAIN EVENT Lifetime Ranking

Apologies for the laziness; however does this partial year (60 games season) factor the same as if it was a full season (162 game season) in your calculations? 37% equivalent to 100%?
